As an affiliate marketing expert you are essentially an agent selling excellent products that you count on or even have an enthusiasm in, but there are actually no typical "purchases" work associated with offering them.
Affiliates are earning billions of dollars annually attempting to sell other people's products and there are an estimated 1.4 billion people using the internet worldwide and these people is a potential customer. Affiliate marketing is possibly the most acceptable small business online, therefore affiliates need to maintain finding new services, writing fresh articles and approaching new customers.

Four years ago I had the idea to build a blog network dedicated to reviewing and rounding up apps. We started with Mac apps and then quickly expanded to additional channels covering iOS, Android, Windows and Web apps. While the network has been successful in traffic and audience, reaching some 100m+ visitors over the four years, it’s ultimately not fit within our broader company mission. So I’m here today to announce that unfortunately after four years of app guidance, we’re closing AppStorm down.

iPad Air 2

Re/code’s John Paczkowski may actually have a legitimate friend on the inside of Apple because he has been pretty dead on when it comes to correctly identifying rumors. Back in August, the tech writer revealed that Apple would hold the iPhone event on Sept. 9.

Today, Paczkowski reports

that Apple is planning on holding its next media event on Oct. 16. My earlier prediction of Oct. 21 appears to be off the mark.

According to Re/code, Apple will hold the next media event on Thursday, Oct. 16 at Cupertino’s Town Hall Auditorium and not the flashy Flint Center. It is rumored that Apple will unveil the next generation of iPad Air and iPad mini, as well as an updated iMac line. Apple will also, hopefully announce the availability of OS X Yosemite and make Apple Pay ready for use.

I’d also like to see the Apple TV refresh that everyone keeps talking about. My set-top box is four years old now. I’m pretty sure that streaming media technology has improved a lot since 2010 and my outdated box doesn’t seem to be able to handle the load anymore. I’d love a more powerful, faster version.

Rumors surrounding the second generation of iPad Air include Touch ID and a slightly smaller frame. The device will supposedly come with a faster A8X processor chip, and might even include near-field communication technology so that it is compatible with Apple Pay.

Re/code’s information is probably true, which also means that the tablet might be ready for preorder the next day and ready to ship by Oct. 24. Here’s hoping.

erminal Apple fans, Thursday, October 16 will be about OS X Yosemite and a 5K pixel super HD Retina iMac.

Can anyone remember the last time there was an Apple Event on a Thursday? Perhaps not, but this particular rumor comes via href="" target="_blank">the good offices of John Paczkowski:

Apple has a few more new products to unveil before the year is out, and it plans to show them off in a couple weeks. Sources tell Code/red the company will hold its next special event on Thursday, Oct. 16 — not the 21st.

The unveiling will be held at the company’s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino. It is, by comparison with the Flint Center’s thousands of seat, alas, tiny.

This year’s 9.7-inch iPad Air and 7.9-inch iPad mini updates will likely include Touch ID enabled home buttons, faster chips (A8 in the larger tablet) and 802.11ac WiFi. Of course, both will hit the ground running iOS 8.

With Touch ID, Apple’s new iPads will be able to use Apple Pay, the company’s big-time push into the world of mobile payments, which interestingly enough is expected to go live on href="">Oct 20 with the arrival of iOS 8.1.

We should not, however, expect to see neither hide nor hair of the long-rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro. While it’s still alive in the grapevine, the iPad Pro is not expected until 2015.

For what it’s worth The Beard (aka Jim Dalrymple) href="" target="_blank">has yet to yep or nope October 16.

OS X Yosemite, Retina iMacshref="">src="" alt="os x yosemite keynote icon Retina iMac, New iPad Apple Event on Oct 16" width="1024" height="627" class="size-full wp-image-60854" title="Retina iMac, New iPad Apple Event on Oct 16" />class="wp-caption-text">OS X Yosemite will include an updated palette of href="" target="_blank">system and app icons.

Mac fans, ignore those obsessed with Post PC mobility and its accouterments. The real stars of the Thursday, October 16 Apple Event will be OS X Yosemite and Retina iMacs.

iOS 8 arrived weeks ago, but much of what makes it special won’t become available until OS X Yosemite ships on or about Oct 16. New features will include an updated user interface, more powerful/inclusive Spotlight search (really good), and updated core apps, like Safari, Mail and Photos.

Retina iMac Plans…/> A source familiar with Apple’s plans tells me that Apple is indeed planning to launch a Retina iMac at their next press event, however the 27? Model will be the only model that gets this feature. The source says the new 27? iMac will use a 5120 x 2880 panel as leaked in the OSX Yosemite code a few months ago. This resolution is double the current resolution of the 27? iMac which is 2560×1440 — href="">Earlier Tapscape

Again, however, OS X Yosemite’s iOS 8 tie ins are headliners. These include Hand Off (device independent workflow), device independent calling and messaging, and instant hotspot functionality.

Regardless of these latest rumors, earlier this week, we know an Apple Event will happen soon — Apple seeded href="" target="_blank">OS X Yosemite Gold Master to developers and volunteer AppleSeed testers.

So, is your Mac and are your apps Yosemite ready? What about the supposed Thursday, October 16 Apple Event has you excited, iPads or Retina iMacs or OS X Yosemite or…

What’s your take?

iOS 8

As announced at the Apple Keynote Presentation last week, the next generation operating system for the Apple iPhone and iPad, iOS 8, will be released to everyone today. The new OS, which will be made available free of charge, was released as a Gold Master for Developer testing last week, and comes just two days before the first deli

veries of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus start to arrive on customer doorsteps. iOS 8 represents a big leap forward for Apple with one major new feature, Continuity, being touted as the ultimate way to connect together iOS devices and Mac OS X.

In addition, iOS also bring AirDrop to iOS devices, as well as Handoff, a new feature which allows users to seamlessly switch between devices when working on tasks. The extends to the ability to send and receive SMS messages from Mac and iPad, using iPhone Handoff functionality. Users will also be able to take advantage of iCloud Drive, a Dropbox-like service which brings full cloud storage features to iCloud users.

These features, along with smaller tweaks to Notification Centre, keyboards, Siri, Photos, Camera and Health, means that iOS will likely see the fastest adoption of any iOS version. Some features, like Handoff and SMS Relay will not work immediately until OS X Yosemite is released, likely next month, but other new features are available immediately.

There is no word yet on what time the update will be released to the public, but today is the day.



Passwords are a giant pain in the behind (pardon my language). First and foremost, passwords need need to be secure, and in order for them to be secure they have to be a long string of letters (random mix of uppercase and lowercase), numbers and symbols (for good measure). When you create a strong password they’re nearly impossible to remember, the theory being that if you can’t remember it how will anyone trying to hack your account crack the barrage of characters you created.

So, when you create these 15+ character passwords, how are you to keep track of them? There are certai

nly a number of options available (I know some opt for a good old-fashioned spreadsheet), but if you want a secure, user friendly experience 1Password has been to the go-to choice for quite some time. In December 2012, AgileBit released version 4 of 1Password, which includes an impressive list of new features. Hit the jump to take a peek at what the new 1Password has to offer.

Beautiful & Functional

For those of you updating from the previous version of 1Password, the first thing you’ll notice in version 4 is the all-new design. Compared to other password management iOS apps (e.g. mSecure, LastPass, SecureSafe) 1Password has always featured a more pleasant design, but the new interface puts the app on a whole new level. The splash screen still features the iconic lock design, but the app as a whole has ditched the skeuomorphic vault design in favor of simple backgrounds, and textured headers and navigation bars.

Beautiful and simple are very accurate words to describe 1Password's new design.

The side navigation bar has received a fairly substantial overhaul, folding many of the previous options (Logins, Accounts, Notes, Software, Wallet) into a new Categories section. Additionally, two new sections have been added — Favorites and Folders. Favorites, as the name implies, is a feature that allows you to quickly access your most commonly used logins, notes, cards, etc. If you don’t fancy scrolling through a huge list of logins, Folders is a great feature that allows you to sort your items in the manner of your choosing.

To add an item to your favorites, tap the + button in the Favorites section (or tap the star icon in the item’s details view).

Another nifty feature that you can utilize in the Categories section is Global Search. When you select a category (e.g. Logins, Secure Notes) a search bar is displayed at the top of the list. As you begin typing, the results will autocomplete. To make the most of this feature, I found it best to use it in the All Items category, which will display results from every item you’ve entered into 1Password.

Easily search through all your items.

A Better Browser

One area of 1Password that’s also improved greatly is the in-app browser. Those familiar with the previous browser know it offered very little for users; luckily, the new browser brings some much needed features including tabbed browsing, a URL omnibar (good for entering a direct address or search queries) and form filling options (easily enter login, credit card or personal information while using the browser).

The new browser makes it quite simple to enter your login, credit card or personal information.

The browser is certainly serviceable, but like all other non-Safari browsers it falls prey to the missing Nitro JavaScript Engine. Another strike going against the browser is that it’s simply not convenient to use for everyday browsing, mainly because you have to log into the app for nearly each browsing session. What’s even more intriguing is the lack of creating a new login entry while signing-up for a new account on websites. It would seem like a no-brainer that I could go to a site, begin the process of creating an account and have the option of generating a new password without having to exit the browser.

I'd love the option to create a new login and password while using the browser.

For those of you that like to utilize bookmarklets with Safari, I have some good news. You can easily create a Safari-to-1Password bookmarklet (using the javascript provided below), which when used, will instantly switch from Safari to 1Password and load the webpage in 1Password’s browser (you may need to login to 1Password if your previous session has expired). It’s a really nice option if you don’t want to copy and paste credentials into Safari, as long as you don’t mind using another browser.


The Bottom Line

To call version 4 of 1Password an improvement is putting it mildly. While it may be shallow of me to put so much stock in an app’s, the new interface simply sells the whole experience. To me, there’s simply nothing more enjoyable as an iPad user as when an app development team creates the perfect blend of design and functionality. Dollars to donuts, version 4 of 1Password could easily be the poster child of great design and great functionality.

In addition to the redesign, the list of some really great additions in form of Favorites and Folders, an approved web browser, global search, action bar (which allows you to swipe across an item to copy, favorite, open in the browser or delete), and iCloud sync (Dropbox sync is still available), all adds up to a truly great app. Even better, a purchase is good towards a universal version of the app (making it available on all your iOS devices for one low cost).

If you’re serious about changing your password habits, I simply cannot recommend 1Password enough. Like most people, I too fell prey to using a handful of the same passwords for all of my accounts. Practicing such unsafe habits it bad enough, but the real problem I always had was forgetting passwords for sites I rarely visited. After trying multiple login attempts, I’d often succumb to accessing the Forget My Password feature, bringing about a truly inconvenient experience. Since I began using 1Password, such issues have never reared their ugly head again.


fibbleHave you seen those little paper cards sitting next to the green cup stoppers at your local Starbucks? Don’t ignore them. Pick one up and flip it over — each card has a code for an iOS freebie on the back. Every Tuesday the ubiquitous coffee purveyor offers customers a free download or two. Frequently the codes offer a song from a popular artist such as Bruno Mars o

r Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, or an iOS app, an iBook, or an episode of a TV show to watch in iTunes.

This week’s offering is Fibble HD, a physics-based puzzler that normally retails for $0.99.

Players travel with Fibble, an adorable little alien, through four rooms: the kitchen, the bathroom, kid’s room, the basement, and the garden. Each room offers a variety of levels; there are 40 levels in the game. Solve all the levels so Fibble, with a little help from his friends, can finally exit the house and travel back to his home planet.

Fibble’s gameplay crosses Angry Birds with mini golf. Draw back Fibble with a finger, then release it to earn coins and other prizes. Complete the level by using one, two, or three three flicks. The fewer flicks you need, the more stars you earn, and like Angry Birds, Fibble HD encourages the replay of levels again to earn three stars on each.

As one might expect, the courses get increasingly complicated as the player moves through the game. At times the player also has to tap the screen to roll Fibble along. There are a few surprises along the way and Fibble meets friends with powers that help him navigate the course.

Fibble HD is a casual puzzler with colorful animation that will appeal to kids and as well as adults. It’s Game Center-enabled, and has all the usual social media bells and whistles.

At 524 MB, the app is rather large, so make sure you have at least 1GB free on your device before installing it.

The verdict: If you’re in Starbucks already, why not pick up a copy of Fibble HD? It could be the perfect addition to your afternoon coffee break.
